Healthy Way has been providing the most trusted, effective basement waterproofing in New Jersey since 2007. Waterproofing your basement is crucial to protecting the value of your home and the safety of your family.

We use innovative technology and time-tested techniques to discover and solve your basement's water-related problems.

Because basement wall leaks and water seepage are often caused by structural issues, external waterproofing is required. While some companies only seal the interior walls of your basement, Healthy Way goes the extra mile to fix your water issues inside and out. That way, your basement leaks stop for good.

Once we find the root of the water issues in your basement, we will get to work on a custom-designed solution that will exceed your basement waterproofing needs.

Our basement waterproofing services in New Jersey help prevent the following problems:

  • Decrease in home value

Don't wait to address the moisture developing in your basement - call Healthy Way today for a customized solution to your water seepage problems.

What Causes Moisture in Your Basement?

It's easy to spot water leaking through a crack in your basement, but most homeowners don't know that there is a potential for water issues without heavy rains or obvious signs of standing water. At Healthy Way, we try to educate our clients on the real causes of water in your basement. Here are two of the most common reasons why you might need basement waterproofing in Sea Bright:

Clay Bowl Effect

The "Clay Bowl" Effect

It might not be evident on the surface, but many basements are built in a below-grade dip, which is surrounded by backfill. Because backfill is made up of soil that was removed during foundation digging, it creates an empty shape or "bowl" effect. Once the foundation is finished, this loose soil is placed back around the foundation. Unfortunately, soil of this consistency is more absorbent and porous than the undisturbed soil around it, which is hard-packed and less porous. When rain or thunderstorms occurs, the soil closest to your home becomes saturated, putting pressure on your basement walls.

Hydrostatic Pressure

Hydrostatic Pressure:

This kind of pressure affects homeowners with property built below the water table or on a hillside where water runs down a hill. When the soil around your foundation becomes saturated, it will expand and put intense pressure on the walls of your foundation and basement. This pressure can create cracks, giving water an easy route into your basement.

How Healthy Way Solves Your Basement Waterproofing Needs

Having a wet basement not only puts your health at risk, it lowers the value of your home and makes it more difficult to sell. The good news? We offer a number of waterproofing services and products to solve your problems fast. A few of our solutions include:

  • Sump pumps
  • Perimeter drainage systems
  • Doorway drainage systems
  • High-strength washer hoses
  • Floor and wall crack repair
  • Replacement windows
  • Flood protection for your water heater

When you use Healthy Way for basement waterproofing in New Jersey, you can rest easy knowing that all our systems come with a written, lifetime warranty. This warranty is transferrable, meaning you can re-establish your home's value and give future owners confidence knowing that their new home is protected.

The Healthy Way Basement Waterproofing Process

Because every home is different, your basement waterproofing solution could be vastly different than that of your next-door neighbor. Many factors play a part when it comes to keeping your basement dry and safe for living. As a general rule, we approach each issue with a "prevention over repair" mindset. By taking this stance, we give our clients a more cost-effective, long-term resolution. We're not in the business of putting a "Band-Aid" on your water problem - we want to fix your issue completely, so you don't have to worry about recurring problems. Our effective basement waterproofing systems include a mix of the following strategies:

Interior Waterproofing

Interior Waterproofing

Interior waterproofing methods usually start with our team ensuring that any holes or cracks in your basement floors, walls, and windows are sealed properly. Sealing cracks in your basement is an important first step since this is usually the first place where water can enter your home. Our sealants keep your basement dry and help prevent more moisture from finding its way into your home. Interior waterproofing strategies like these also help lower humidity levels in your basement. While sealants and other interior waterproofing strategies help correct initial issues, they don't usually solve the underlying problem causing leaks in your basement. Those issues are most often found outside your home.

Exterior Waterproofing

Exterior Waterproofing

Once our team is finished with your interior waterproofing, we will move to the exterior of your home. Waterproofing the outside of your home is often a more complex, nuanced goal. Because of the difficult nature of exterior waterproofing, we recommend you consult with our team of professionals before tackling the job on your own. Generally speaking, our team beings the outdoor waterproofing process by excavating the soil around your home's foundation. Once we remove the soil surrounding your foundation, our experts will apply a polymer-based sealant to any cracks we discover. This sealant is a long-term solution and should remain intact for the life of your home. While the Healthy Way team solves your outdoor moisture problems, we will also check your downspouts, to make sure they aren't clogged. An inefficient gutter system does a poor job of directing water away from your home's foundation, which can cause more moisture to seep into your basement over time.

Exterior Waterproofing

Drainage Systems

One of the most common reasons that people need basement waterproofing in cityname is because they have a poor drainage system. A proper drainage system is paramount in keeping your basement dry and your family safe. These systems are meant to direct water away from your home and come in many forms, from French Drains to simple systems like ground soil. If you're thinking of installing a complex drainage system, save yourself some time and check the soil around your foundation first to make sure it isn't retaining moisture. If a more complex system like a sump pump is required, it's best to work with certified professionals like those at Healthy Way, to make sure your drainage system is installed correctly.

WHICH WATERPROOFING SOLUTION IS RIGHT FOR ME?

Because every home is different, it's hard to say what kind of waterproofing solution is right for your situation. Most homeowners require a combination of interior and exterior waterproofing. There are dozens of factors that come into play when it comes to waterproofing your home, so the answer to your problem may be different than your neighbor's. The good news is that Healthy Way is fully equipped to handle whatever moisture issue you're having. We will work tirelessly to make certain your basement is dry, mold-free, and safe to enjoy. That way, you can get back to living life rather than worrying about mold growth or foundation damage.

According to an agricultural report from Rutgers University, here in New Jersey pumpkins cover over 2,500 acres of farmland and each acre yields about 11 tons of pumpkins per year. That’s a lot of pumpkins.

You should know that 100% of all pumpkins grown here in Jersey are all fresh market and are used for consumption or retail purposes. New Jersey is responsible for a little over 5% of the national production.

An amazing 1.5 billion pounds of pumpkins are grown each year here in the United States. 1.5 billion with a B! The largest pumpkin on record tipped the scales at over 2,600 pounds and was grown by a man in Belgium. Can you imagine that pumpkin pie?

I was thinking the other day how did the pumpkin actually become so associated with Halloween and a symbol for fall harvest? I did some research on the bright round orange object and was pleasantly surprised at some interesting facts.

Many people believe that the pumpkin is a vegetable. It’s actually a fruit and contrary to Thanksgiving folklore it’s not true that the Pilgrims had pumpkin pie at their Thanksgiving table. What they did have is pumpkin beer. Those Pilgrims loved their beer and made it from many fruits and vegetables but pumpkin beer was a Pilgrim fan favorite. It could be because every part of the pumpkin is edible.

The whole idea of carving pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns dates back centuries to Ireland where they would carve squash and potatoes and leave them on the front porch to ward off Stingy Jack who was a trickster and would cause havoc if not fooled. That tradition continued with immigrants here in the United States and the carving of pumpkins became a national past time.

Speaking of pumpkin pie, comedian Lewis Black had a great bit about pumpkins. He said “Why is it when you cut into a pumpkin it smells like crap but yet it makes a tasty pie?” He’s got a point.

So when you go out and pick your pumpkin for your pie or decorate for Halloween, keep in mind the history of this amazing fruit and maybe make a tasty pie or a nice beer!

10 years later — Sandy makes landfall in New Jersey

Can New Jersey handle another Sandy?

Since Sandy made landfall in Atlantic County on Oct. 29, 2012, there have been plenty of reminders that New Jersey is not fully prepared to take on severe weather events.Even this past week, tidal surges from the remnants of Hurricane Ian, which ravaged parts of Florida and the Carolinas, swallowed portions of New Jersey's coastline.Experts and officials say the simple answer is, no, the Garden...

Since Sandy made landfall in Atlantic County on Oct. 29, 2012, there have been plenty of reminders that New Jersey is not fully prepared to take on severe weather events.

Even this past week, tidal surges from the remnants of Hurricane Ian, which ravaged parts of Florida and the Carolinas, swallowed portions of New Jersey's coastline.

Experts and officials say the simple answer is, no, the Garden State is not completely ready to handle another storm similar to the size and strength of Sandy (which wasn't technically a hurricane when it came ashore). But the state is more prepared than it was 10 years ago.

This is the final segment of a five-day series honoring the 10-year anniversary of Sandy — its wrath, the rebuild since, and New Jersey's preparedness for future storms. Part 1: What made Sandy so unique?Part 2: NJ residents still fighting to get homePart 3: Businesses forever changed by the stormPart 4: Millions lost power, utilities still responding

"We've got to keep our foot on the gas, because we don't know how or when or where the next storm will strike us," Shawn LaTourette, commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, told New Jersey 101.5.

A network of solutions is necessary in order to protect New Jersey from the detrimental effects of climate change, LaTourette said. And many are underway, from civil works projects and dune restoration to Blue Acres buyouts of flood-prone properties and improving the systems that drain water from our communities.

"We've made lots of investments. We're still not quite ready for what's to come," LaTourette said.

In 2013, immediately after Sandy, dozens of projects were launched to reinforce beaches along the New Jersey coastline — a partnership between DEP and the Army Corps of Engineers.

Extreme weather events will worsen over time, experts predict, as global warming contributes to sea level rise. Sea level along the U.S. coastline is expected to rise, on average, 10 to 12 inches, in the next 30 years, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

New Jersey and elsewhere are seeing more extreme rainfall in short periods of time, that infrastructure cannot handle, LaTourette added. Last September provided a prime example — the remnants of Ida resulted in major disaster declarations for residents, businesses and local governments in the counties of Bergen, Cape May, Essex, Gloucester, Hudson, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Passaic, Somerset, Union, and Warren.

"We need to plan our communities better. We need to secure our assets in a more resilient way," LaTourette said.

As part of a Sandy-related event later this month, DEP will announce another step forward in a long-awaited plan to step up coastal flood defenses in Union Beach.

The multi-phase flood control project should be complete by 2030, according to Rob Keady, senior vice president of T&M Associates, the municipal engineer for Union Beach.

"The borough is not fully recovered," Keady said.

The devastation left behind by Sandy was an eye-opening reminder for New Jersey of the power of nature, said Jon Miller, research associate professor at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken.

Sandy, a post-tropical cyclone, actually delivered a blow to New Jersey that's similar to a category 3 or higher hurricane, he said.

"I think we're better off than where we were 10 years ago, but are we completely out of harm's way? No, I don't think we are," Miller said.

Part of a "series of smaller steps" to address storm protection, he said, is preventing new construction in areas that are vulnerable to the sea and bay.

According to Tom Herrington, associate director of the Urban Coast Institute at Monmouth University, Sandy exposed the vulnerability of New Jersey's bayside communities. As of now, he said, not much has been done to address that issue, especially when you compare those investments to the investments made in protecting the open ocean coastline.

"There are plans and there are projects in the works, but we haven't been able to get to the implementation phase yet," Herrington said.

Shore protections implemented since Sandy were put to the test for several days recently, as the coast was continually pounded by strong waves produced by Ian, the hurricane that crushed homes and roadways in the southeast.

From Monmouth to Cape May counties, dunes in select shore towns were carved into, resulting in steep drop-offs.

This was not good timing for a hit to storm protection infrastructure, Herrington said, as there's still plenty of "storm season" to weather. The Atlantic hurricane season runs through November.

“But the good news is the dunes are still there – they’re high and wide and still ready to provide protection to our coastal communities," Herrington said.

NJ angler pulls off hat trick, reeling in three fish at once

The fishing has been so good this fall, fishermen are catching them three at a time.

While the striped bass are the big talk on the docks, along with the red-hot yellowfin bite in the Hudson Canyon, one of the best catches of late was made on the Fish Monger II party boat, if only for the variety of fish reeled in at once.

Capt. Jerry Postorino was bottom fishing when one member of his fishing party pulled a hat trick. While that's not unheard of — anglers often string together three or more mackerel or sardines on a Sabiki rig, this angler caught a triggerfish, sea bass and porgy on the same rig at once. It appears as if the porgy got snagged, while the other two took the bait. Postorino said he couldn't believe it when he saw it.

Hat trick aside, the striped bass still remain the focal point of most of the fishing effort.

There were some big cows wrestled into the boats fishing off locales such as Asbury Park mid-week. While there are keepers being taken, many fish are over the 38-inch size limit and going back into the water.

The Golden Eagle party boat from Belmar was out on the water on Wednesday. Capt. Rich Falcone said the bass were in the bunker pods, again, and they bit for most of the trip, or at least until mid-day. He said it was better than the day before, on Tuesday, when they had bass splashing around in the bunker but very few actually gave chase to their baited hooks and swim shads.

On the beaches, there was a good blitz Tuesday in the Monmouth Beach and Sea Bright area. Mike Pinto at Giglio's Bait and Tackle said the bass were chasing peanut bunker and came right over the sand bar and in tight to the beach.

"It lasted for a while. The bass were there for most of the morning, between 7 and 11 a.m. There was a little bit left in the afternoon," Pinto said.

Pinto said the fish were big, 30 pounders. There may have been a few in the 20-pound range, but he said it catch and release. Surf casters were tossing pencil poppers, mostly, though there were some snagging bunker out of the wash and reloading with circle hooks.

On Wednesday it was quiet on the beach again. Pinto said it's been like that since the fall run started. They get a blitz and then it's just a waiting game for a week or more until they get the next one. He hasn't seen or heard of many, if any, bluefish in the surf, at least in their area.

On Long Beach Island, there was some movement in the island's fall surf fishing classic. Domenic Minando, from Waldick, took over the lead with a 12-pound, 3-ounce bass he caught at Barnegat Light. He was fishing overnight with eels and got the bite at 1:30 a.m.

When John Lennon sang "there are places I remember" with The Beatles, he could easily have been talking about the Jersey Shore.

No matter where you live in New Jersey, if you've lived here all your life, you had to have spent time at the Jersey Shore and many of the places you remember aren't there anymore.

I've owned two businesses at the shore, both coffee houses.

One in Sea Isle City called Coffee Dot Comedy, which was an internet cafe where we also did comedy five nights a week, the other was called The Daily Grove in Ocean Grove, where we had bands playing on the weekends, among them were Rock N Roll Hall of Famer Vini "Mad Dog" Lopez.

The problem with staying in business at the shore is that you're pretty much only making money for about four months a year.

Add to that the pandemic plus the cost of doing business in New Jersey and many of the places we remember have been forced to close.

Recently, we have seen places like the Avon Pavillion close while Tuzzio's in Long Branch announced the owners would be retiring at the end of this year after 55 years in business. What are the places that you remember that are no longer at the shore?

Project begins this week and set to complete before Memorial Day

CAMDEN, N.J. – New Jersey American Water will replace approximately 1,200 feet of aging water main in Sea Bright starting this week. The project includes replacing the 16-inch main along Ocean Ave (Route 36) from Peninsula Avenue to approximately the entrance of Shrewsbury Riverfront Park.
